Peter Smeekens is of Belgian descent, combining small sounds into a tight weaving and fabricating them into potent tissue. For EARLabs he composed three excellent tracks of small, light weight sound sources. There is a fourth track, which is a computer remix/scramble of the three original compositions. Mind you: it can ony be played with winamp. Somehow all other applications fail to read the header file and turn this brilliant computer-Cage-composition into hideous Merzbow-muck.

'onontgonnen' is rather a collection of sounds, recordings and patterns, albeit reworked, but never pushed to the point where they should or could stand alone as an actual piece on their own. rudimental perhaps, but the raw character also allows them to maintain their own, private connotations and identities, unpolished, free from gloss, in an almost intimate way. some digital, some analog, some copied and pasted, perhaps processed, layered or remixed, but most of all, uncultivated.
